holder today praised the libyan government's response. it's a challenging environment in which to operate but i think we have done pretty well given the circumstances in which we find ourselves and we found ourselves able to move about and do the things that we have wanted to do because of the assistance we've gotten from the libyan government as well as from some of our other allies >> sreenivasan: a u.s. house committee holds a hearing tomorrow on the consulate attack. in pakistan, a taliban gunman shot and wounded a 14-year-old activist known for promoting girls' education. malala yousufzai was hit in the head and neck during the attack in the swat valley region. doctors said the wounds were not life-threatening. yousufzai spoke out on girls' education at a u.n. children's assembly last year. the taliban called her work "an obscenity" in a statement claiming responsibility for the attack. one out of every eight people on earth is going hungry, according to a u.n. report today. that comes to 870 million people, but it's far below the figure of one billion announced in 2009. the u.n. foo
. but the spanish government complained today that move will only make things worse. >> ( translated ): what everybody needs to have in mind is that political stability is also listed on the stock exchange, and there are a lot of everyday questions for government and citizens that depend on political stability. when some actions or decisions generate political instability, it is much harder to get financing. i am not only talking about financing for public administration, but also for individuals and companies. >> sreenivasan: meanwhile, the government of greece reported unemployment reached a record of more than 25% in july. the rate among young people, 15- to-24 years old, is double that 54%. an outbreak of fungal meningitis in the u.s. has now claimed 14 lives. the centers for disease control reported the latest count today. it said a total of 170 people have been infected across eleven states. the outbreak has been linked to steroid injections for back pain that came from a specialty pharmacy in massachusetts. roughly 14,000 people received the shots. in pakistan, a 14-year-old activist
don't pay taxes and, in his words, are dependent on government, so he couldn't worry about them and their votes. >> in this case, i said something that's just completely wrong. and i absolutely believe, however, that my life has shown that i care about the 100% and that has been demonstrated throughout my life. this whole campaign is about the 100%. when i become president, it'll be about helping the 100%. >> brown: still, president obama was having none of it. >> from the day we began this campaign, we've always said that real change takes time. it takes more than one year or one term, or even one president. it takes more than one party. it certainly can't happen if you're willing to write off half the nation before you even take office. >> brown: with the economy dominating the campaign, and with 12 million americans still unemployed, it was clear the punching and counter-punching over jobs will only grow more intense. and there's still one more monthly employment report coming-- on november 2, four days before election day. to help break down the jobs numbers, i am joined by
have is hiring that is concentrated, most recently, in the government sector. hiring that is concentrated, most recently in education and healthcare. a little bit of positive news coming from construction. but in a lot of the business services and goods-producing industries and manufacturing, things look pretty soft at this moment. >> reporter: in addition, 2,000 temporary jobs were cut, which is often looked at as a barameter of future employment. but, the average work week rose to 34-and a half hours... and employers typically boost the workload of existing staff.. before taking on new workers. with all these cross-currents, the employment situation may be but the bottom line seems to be that the economy is improving, but not nearly as quickly as most people would like. >> we lost so many jobs during the great recession, that we are slowly clawing our way out of that hole.. but still at a pretty slow pace." >> reporter: the government's next jobs report will come out just 4 days before the presidential election. by then, many voters will have made up their minds. so
about how to govern ourselves in order to deal with this. we know how to do this. that's what's so god-awful ironic about this. we know how to deal with it and we're not dealing with it. so if we kind of wake up, we get out of our mental torpor and we can break the shackles of the special interest groups that are preventing positive progress on this we can handle this, we know how to do it. >> are you going back up any time soon? >> no, no. >> you've had enough of the high country? >> no, never, never, absolutely not. i mean, it's just, it's so incredibly beautiful. when i'm getting ready for a lot of these trips, as i'm packing my cameras i go, "good grief. how can i possibility shoot anything new on this trip? you now, it's going to be a repeat of the same old thing." and every single time i go out and reality delivers something new where you go, "wow, i've never seen that before, and isn't that cool?" click, get another shot. >> the book is "ice: portraits of vanishing glaciers" and the film's title is? >> "chasing ice." >> which you've done for a long time. >> been chasing ice, abs
for the policies they believe in, stand up for a role for government, call malarkey when it is. and i think you're going to see the democratic base of women far more energized. and you're going to see women then turn out in higher numbers which is very, very important to democratic victories. >> brown: kellyanne conway, let me come back to what you picked up. you could pick up on that but also what you said on how we approach these things. how we think about women's issues per sement because we keep hearing that the campaign could well hinge on women voters. do you think that is a wrong way of looking at it? >> it is absolutely correct that the next president and vice president will be decided ultimately by women. but it's absolutely a false premise to believe that there are quote women's issues. and that they all have to do with, you know, waste down. what about waste up, where our brains and hearts and eyes and ears are. and i think 2010 really proved it. that's where two short years after 56% of women gave a strat spheric barack obama 56% of the vote, was unheard of for a nonincumbent. and t
measure whether your plan is narrowly tailored. >> and how do you represent a state government. how was the court in 2003 when affirmative action was upheld then, and now there's a possibility it won't be because of the terms of this particular case? what's different about the court? >> well, the composition of the court has changed. the grutter decision was 5-4 which chief justice ren quest was chief. it was a decision by justice sandra day, o'connor, who was in the courtroom today of the guest seats of the justices. >> ifill: is that unusual? >> she has come occasion amy but i think she has a special interest in this case. you have new justices. you have four new justices on the court. but with the absence of justice kagan in this case, you're dealing with eight justices, the possibility of a 4-4 split. also, justice kennedy has always been the key vote in these race-based cases. he asked very few questions today, so he didn't really reveal-- >> ifill: you couldn't really read him. >> no, you couldn't. but i will say this about justice kennedy in these types of cases -- he has nev
've got to tell their government to stop cyber attacking the united states. >> reporter: huawei aggressively pushed back. the company says the intelligence committee provided no clear evidence of wrong doing and it dismissed the report as politically motivated. a spokesman for huawei says the company is owned by its employees and its work around the world is trusted and proven. >> our procurements from us companies totaled $6.6 billion. that's tens of thousands of jobs. these recommendations put at risk american jobs. >> reporter: huawei appears to operate as a purely commercial enterprise, but it is hard to sort out who owns the company and how much of it. the intelligence committee report concludes some chinese telecomm equipment secretly transmitted information back to china. that's what concerns u.s. cyber- security experts. they fear the chinese government could use huawei's technology to access sensitive information. >> i think it is a legitimate concern. now the question is how much that concern is being used in the u.s. to block a much larger range of investments, becaus
. the election is tightening up, which means anybody who is elected is likely to govern from the center, and attack the fiscal cliff. and so you have to say in a low return environment, shares of multinational companies with growing earnings and dividends are probably not a bad place to be. but you want to buy when the markets are down, not when they're up, and you want to sell low quality, buy high quality, and buy them on corrections, not after big moves. i would not be surprised if you have a little bit more of a correction right here. >> susie: so let's talk a little more about this correction. it feels like a correction. between what's going on with oil prices going lower, some of these earnings reports that we've been getting. so what are the risks ahead, and is this a buying opportunity? one strategist saying today that he's pretty upbeat because with central banks around the world pouring money into the financial system, it's kind of hard to see that the global economy will freeze up. so what's your take on this? risky period or a buying opportunity? >> well, look, it remains ri
gains in the session after a government report showed a slightly higher than expected increase in u.s. supplies last week. it ended back above $92 a barrel. heating oil and natural gas futures rallied. the same government report also forecast a rise in spending for winter heating fuels. heating oil is at a six-month high, and natural gas prices are at new highs for the year. those rising prices are making coal look more attractive. peabody and consol energy rose at least 8%. alpha natural and arch coal were up even stronger. looking ahead to tomorrow, j.p. morgan and wells fargo will report third quarter results before the opening bell. shares of j.p. morgan moved slightly higher on word that the bank's c.f.o. will step down and move into a different position. j.p. morgan is expected to post profits of $1.21 a share; that's 19 cents above last year's numbers. wells fargo is expected to earn 87 cents a share; that's 15 cents better than the same period last year. and finally, we see the powershares qqq's was the lone loser among most actively traded e.t.f.s. and that's tonight's "mar
and z.t.e. the house intelligence committee reported both have close ties to the government of china. it said using their components in u.s. computer networks could let them steal trade secrets or even shut down vital systems in a time of crisis. the two firms denied any such association to the chinese government. venezuela's leftist president hugo chavez will serve another six years after winning reelection sunday. his margin of victory was ten points, the narrowest in his 14 years in power. it was a bitterly fought race against challenger henrique capriles, who conceded defeat. chavez welcomed that concession last night, as supporters poured into the streets and surrounded the presidential palace. he addressed them from the balcony. >> my gratitude to the right wing candidate and his campaign managers who announced to the country that they recognize our victory. this is a very important step for peace in venezuela, for our coexistence. >> sreenivasan: chavez is expected to step up his push for socialism, and to continue his longstanding criticism of u.s. foreign policy. turkey reta
measure. that's a little bit scary, too, particularly because it guarantees local governments $5 billion a year for realignment. a constitutional spending commitment on a temporary tax. that's kind of uncertain, as well. >> belva: we have so many hot issues, we have to move to one that is really hot, because it is burning the pocketbooks of the people of the state, and that's gas prices that seem to be gone a bit wild. >> to a record price in san francisco today, probably around the state by tomorrow. the average price in the bay area is $4.55. that is 16 cents more than yesterday. 37 cents more than a week ago and 70 cents higher than a year ago. so, it is a huge problem for the state of california. there are six primary factors that are contributing to this and they are very important. one is the chevron refinery that's 1 out of 8 gallons of fuel in the state of california. that's out of service for many months to come there was a major pipeline that chevron owns and operates that has been shut down since the middle of september, out of service, denies amount of crude oil, cutting down
of meetings with customers and as well as high government officials, and i could see that they're putting in a similar program which is strongly targeted on the infrastructure side. so i'm confident that we will see growth coming back most likely at the end of the fourth quarter, i believe. and the u.s., atz as i just said, is doing a little better than we originally thought driven by the two strong segments, automotive and aerospace. >> susie: how are you factoring demand forecast when the international monetary fund saying today there are serious risks of a global recession? things are slowing down in china. how are you meet those kinds of high demands in the way that you're forecasting? >> look, we see the industry, and there's a lot of industry that is are wanting more and more aluminum. we see in the u.s., for instance, the automotive industry, not only growing but more strongly growing on the aluminum side, driven by regulations for lower emissions. and stronger kuflt mersensitivity for fuel efficiencies. and these two things come together and bring substantial amount of aluminum g
was 23 and 24. >> as a reporter? >> as a reporter. it was the usual thing in mexico. the government would say what you could say on the air and what you couldn't say on the air. i decided i didn't want to be that kind of reporter so i sold everything and came to the united states. just imagine that now i can talk to anyone without asking permission for anything. i had to leave my country because of that. it used to be said that the powerful and the rich never leave their country, only those who need possibilities and those who are poor and those who are ambitious leave their countries. that's exactly what happened with me. i came here because i had to come here. something pushed me out of mexico and something pulled me from the united states. now i have two passports, but honestly i have to thank this country because it gave me all the wonderful opportunities. if i would have stayed in mexico, i don't know what would have happened but i would have been a very poor, sad and probably censored journalist. >> why did your parents come? >> my parents came in the 1940s and it was because my fat
